No problem, I was just wondering about cleaning / regreasing. The wear caused during the action of moving the indents from one position to another and general use has turned the grease quite dark in my case.

better not to do anything until a problem appears. Grease darkens easily. It is a not a bad indication.
I am making dust protecting caps for the rotator. It will prevent sands from getting into the rotator.
